Boiled Eggs


  • 3x eggs, OR desired amount for the meal or for the week.
  • 2g salt, pinch of salt


  • Fill a medium saucepan three-quarters full with cool water (enough to cover the egg)
  • Add a good pinch of salt and add in your eggs.
  • Bring the water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
  • Start your egg timer as soon as the water starts to boil (there are also apps you can use)
  • Cook for the following times, depending on how you like your egg yolks: 3mins for runny; 5mins for semi firm; 8mins for hard boiled.
  • NOTE if cooking for snacks, we recommend hard boiling.
  • Once done, immerse them immediately in cold water. Once cool, peel to enjoy OR leave whole (unpeeled) in fridge for 3-4 days.
